  1. Nevermind, I was just trying to continue on the topic of transparent media files that it would be nice to have the spinning disc animation on all Disc media for all platforms. Currently I think it's only on a limited amount of platforms.
  2. If you read the overview it says: " The Famicom version by Sunsoft is considered superior to the US release by Tengen. Sunsoft cleaned up the game to remove the flicker, enhanced the music, and changed the color palette." Enough changes to merit a unique entry I'd say. I think the idea of having 1 entry is to avoid creating "duplicate" entries of the game that is identical in all countries on the same platform - that's why we have region tags for images (unfortunately there are none for publishers). I think common sense and looking into details from multiple sources are your best guides with "grey areas" in the guidelines and the forum is a great place to find out about the general "unwritten rules" also. And yes, the guidelines on the first page should still be accurate (except for the superscript breaking scraping - haven't had any technical issues with that, I would say that one is obsolete).
  3. Hi, Is the connection broken again? I've added a huge amount of missing C16/Plus 4 and Dragon 32/64 games (finished yesterday but started a week ago). Many of them have been approved quite some time ago, but LB can't find all of the approved ones from its local database (which I've also forced to update).
  4. The point of an overview is that is should be short and not have too many details (it's not a full product description, or otherwise we would have a separate features field or something). So personally I would reject a change like that and we have wikipedia links to anyone wanting to know more about the game... https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/overview "a short description of something that provides general information about it, but no details" EDIT: Maybe limiting the amount of text the overview can have with a hard code? Just a suggestion
  5. Works fine now, thank you!
  6. @faeran or @C-Beats how you had time to check this? The issue is still ongoing:
  7. I have a similar issue with a Pinball game I submitted days ago that was also approved days ago, but cannot be found with the launchbox's app's search function so it could be added manually (even after using the "force update game database data" option: https://gamesdb.launchbox-app.com/games/details/395128-the-games
  8. I think you answered your own question https://gamesdb.launchbox-app.com/games/details/376101-the-elder-scrolls-iii-morrowind-game-of-the-year-edition is a duplicate entry lacking a lot of media and data and wrong original release date. Steam is a marketplace, not a platform. For some reason that version was added to the database as the "2009 Steam version" ... weird stuff (I'm also seeing people adding MS-DOS games in the Windows platform just because they are available on Steam/GOG etc. and running on DosBOX...). There's no point of adding all marketplace releases in my opinion: https://www.mobygames.com/game/11430/the-elder-scrolls-iii-morrowind-game-of-the-year-edition/releases/windows/ If a game has a specific (even if incorrect) name on Steam/GOG etc. it can always be added as an alternative name to the original entry...
  9. Very nice, happy to see nice progress on the database and big future plans ahead! One question that came into mind right away: Why are games titles and platforms in capital letters now? It's quite hard to see if a title is correctly written. For example: The Secret of the House in the Cave. Might be written "The secret Of The house In THE CAVE." I was also wondering what does the database say about the SNES game "Ballz 3D: Fighting at Its Ballziest" shouldn't it be "at its" instead of "at Its". Yes, I know I could just remove the LB ID and search it again and see if there's any change. There is one way I can see the letter case of the game title directly from the website database: from the browser tab, but it's not a very practical way, especially if you have multiple tabs open you can only partially see the title. I would still recommend prioritizing practical ways of displaying information from a database instead of prioritizing modern visual look. And I also noticed the list view doesn't remain in memory when switching into the next page.
  10. Looks to be the same game released in different years in different regions: http://www.atarimania.com/game-skindiver_s7227.html. I would suggest to delete Skindiver and keep Sea Hunt with more media https://gamesdb.launchbox-app.com/games/details/28818-sea-hunt and just change the release year from '87 to 1983 (even if the American title, which is prioritized as the default title name over other regions, was released later - database rules says we need to have the first release date on the same platform, regardless of region)
  11. We need more votes to get this and other missing platforms prioritized: https://bitbucket.org/jasondavidcarr/launchbox/issues/6461/adding-missing-platforms-to-the-games
  12. Yes, that made a significant difference, thank you!
  13. I completely agree with that and that would be a perfect solution, but I guess quite hard to do the code behind it. a Simple GUI Theme editor without any visual studio coding knowledge based of the current Default theme to tweak it as you would prefer (for me I'd first get rid of most of the curvatures, especially on the cover images) or perhaps a more realistic approach would be to add "advanced" settings in Launchbox's Main Window Theme involving theme visuals/elements in the options menu. There are a ton of options already available, but it looks like there is some demand for even more.
  14. Hi, Where did the Old Default (Legacy) Theme go? It's included in the changelog, but somehow vanished from Launchbox: Visually I still prefer non-rounded uncropped corners for boxes, which is for default themes only available from the very first (legacy) one. + other more practical functions which I prefer in the legacy one (mostly using LB for editing stuff, and BB for playing) - like where is the "ADD" button in the new theme, without the need to open the menu with right-click?
  15. Yes, you can start them individually - I'm afraid I don't remember all the steps I took to get there. Here's my basic setup: And in Launchbox no command lines needed. I use dsiware .nds files as roms and they start directly skipping the DSi Menu. I did dump the nand from my own Nintendo DSi console. There are some incompatibility issues with saving if I recall.
